    Announced after today's game. Kills all those godawful Mark to the Cubs, Red Sox and Mets rumors.

    The only thing better than this for a Sox fan this year was Mark's no-hitter. He's a fan favorite and a great lefty. Gotta have that guy if they want to make a run in future years.

    I was kinda hopin' he'd go to the national league :) At least somewhere that he wouldn't face my Twins 4 times a year.

    How did they resolve the no-trade clause issue?

    He's got a NTC thru 2008, and then his 10-5 rights kick in in 2010.

    If he gets traded, the deal goes to 5 years and it increases to value from $56 million to $75 million.
